Linguistic Data Collector

A large part of the work we do here at Argos Multilingual is related to Data Collection projects for our end clients' research & development teams aiming to train machine translation engines on how a human linguist would translate, and other types of machine learning. Data collection is a vital part of gathering content to train AI to better respond to and interact with natural human language, both written and verbal. The data are collected in different ways, depending on the type & mostly the scope, and the translation project management differs accordingly.

The position is remote and can be done from anywhere. In-country talents are preferred, but this is not a requirement.
